Burger Island (Gamehouse.com)

When Patty’s shipwrecked on a deserted island, she takes a job at a burger place.  Unfortunately, the natives don’t take well to someone overthrowing their business.  Can Patty convince the natives of the island to work with her?

The plot’s not really all that deep so I won’t be saying anything about it.  The game play is another story.  During each level, you make burgers, fries, or shakes.  Be sure to make it before the customer gets angry and leaves.  If you please every customer in a level, you get the perfect goal.  The only way to advance through the game is to met the minimum requirement for each level.  In between levels you can purchase more recipes to get more variety from the game.

This game is simplistic and addictive.  I give it 7 out of 10; fun for the whole family.

Family Tales: The Sisters (Gamehouse.com)

You return to your family home only to discover that your sister, Anna, has been part of a ruthless experiment to bring the Dark Lord into our world.  Now you must go to the world he resides in and save your sister.

Trust me, much more boring than it sounds.  You’d think it wouldn’t be with the alternate dimensions and a dark lord but the only part of the game I was looking forward to was when the game would end.  It just goes to show no matter how interesting your plot sounds, if you can’t deliver it right it’s going to suck.

The game play was probably what ruined it for me.  You go from room to room collecting objects and using them in various locations.  Some require you to partake in hidden object scenes. 

You can use a hint when you’re stuck and believe me you’ll be using it quite often.

This game had potential that was quickly shattered.  I give it 0 out of 10; any game where the only part you’re excited about is the end credits is an instant failure.
